The Wine

"Claude makes one of the great Bourgogne Pinot Noirs, he is often the winner of the La Revue du Vin de France tasting when they do it - he did it with his 2016 and this 2018 is super again. Crafted from the Pommard and Chassagne area, in 2018 the bouquet is again lovely, wafting from the glass in a fine blend of raspberries, black cherries, sweet soil tone and violets. On the palate the wine is medium bodied, lithe, focused and long, with a sappy core, good transparency and fine tension and grip on the long and vibrant finish. . Another serious beauty!

About the Wine Maker

Catherine and Claude Maréchal have been stand outs in Burgundy thanks to the precise, elegant and finely scented wines they produce from their small holdings scattered on six Côte de Beaune communes. Claude began the domaine in 1981 and in the mid 1980’s he met Henri Jayer (The ‘Godfather of Burgundy: 1922-2006), who became a huge source of inspiration and learning. Since then Maréchal has, year after year, honed his skills and today offers incredibly fine wine, among the greats in Burgundy. These wines offer everything one wants in Burgundy but that is so hard to find - admirable concentration, purity and finesse combined with texture and balance that will see these wines evolve over many years. Claude's wines are not expensive for top level Burgundy, something very rare these days. We have stocked every Vintage release of the Maréchal vins since coming into Oz, which speaks for itself! The quality of these wines is nothing short of phenomenal compared to the usual quality of the respective appellations’
